JLIH

So I spoke to my DH over the last few days as I've been feeling really down about the whole TTC thing. And although we're not actively going to TTC until August/September time, we aren't going to actively prevent it either. I guess I just feel because my egg reserves are so low, and my miscarriage history is so high and it just feels like time is running out really, that we'd feel so blessed to even get pregnant that the timing wouldn't really matter.

So we're not trying, not preventing either and just letting it happen if it happens.

If we get to September/October and nothing has happened then DH thinks I should have more testing done and we should focus on it more, but we'll see if it comes to that. I'm hoping not.

Well FF is telling me I O'd on CD13 instead of 18. If that is truly the case, I have a chance this month....

Oooo good luck!

I don't think I have much of a chance this month as things have been so crazy. Currently CD13 so who knows thoughs! I'm not too bothered either way, it'll happen when/if it's supposed too I'm sure. Smile

So I used OPKs through when I normally O so I think I really did O on CD13 instead of 18. I'm feeling slightly neurotic about this. When I got pregnant with my loss, it was the same situation as this (going to TTC in a couple months, early O). I keep thinking if what if that was a loss because of poor egg quality/early O. Not sure when I'll test but since I have tests in the house, I will test. Since going off BC last year my luteal phase is 9-11 days so I'll probably test Saturday(10DPO) if my temps are still high.

I keep making my mental list of why it would be positive but none of them are reasons that mean anything. For example, last year I bought a bunch of PG tests to use up my remaining Flex account for the year. If I am pg, then I will have a whole bunch of extra tests....

Have you tried B6 to lengthen your luteal phase ? 9 days is too short. 10 is borderline, but o.k. Ideally it should be at least 12 days. A short luteal phase can make it difficult to conceive or to sustain a pregnancy. Might be worth trying. Smile

Good luck to both of you !

The vitamins I take do have B6 but I'll look up how much. I did notice the 9 day one was a month I was very lax about taking them so maybe this is why.

I tested yesterday (bfn) . Ideally I'd like to wait until Tuesday but we will see.

Hopefully it was just too early and you'll get your BFP on Tuesday. Biggrin

Well I'm out so I'm back to waiting for a few more months... On the plus side my luteal phase was 13 days this month instead of 9-11 so hopefully that continues.

Sorry this wasn't your month, but great news about the longer luteal phase ! Mine is usually 13 days too. Smile

My cycles still aren't back to normal since having my baby 2 years ago. Stinks not to know what is going on from one month to the next. I think I may order some online cheapies in bulk so I can test without stressing over the waste of money of buying a store bought test. Blum 3

Thanks hun! Still in shock to be honest, didn't really believe it was possible for me to get pregnant anymore. Smile

Going back to preventing instead of JLIH. We bought a house and move in early July. I am so useless and was on modified bed rest with both girls for the first trimester that I really don't want to be pregnant then. Whenever my cycle starts in july we will probably start TTC. I'm getting really bad with temping so I don't know if it will be more actively than JLIH.
